The exach reason for this problem is listed here please know the problem
\015\012Compressor won't run or it is "clicking' on and off: This normally could be a bad start relay and over load for the compressor, dirty condenser coils need cleaning, condenser fan motor is not running or the compressor itself. To check the compressor properly you should test it with an amp meter, each compressor is rated in running amps ( see model/serial tag or the sticker on the compressor )...if the compressor is drawing too much current, this may be why it is shutting off. Check the model tag for proper amp rating. Some relays will be easy to notice the broken with them, they may be burnt. Example one, example two, example three. Some of these relays can be removed and give them a little shake, and if they rattle around inside the relay is likely bad. Compressors can also seize and click on and off or one of the electrical windings inside the compressor could have opened up. You can use a test cord to help check the compressor and this also will help with the amp test. If the compressor checks ok and you want to install a replacement start relay. You will need to find out which winding is which. You will need an ohm meter to determine the windings. First check to see if you have windings in the compressor. Then check to see if they are grounded. If the compressor has windings and they are not grounded, you can find which winding is which. Check for grounded windings by reading from each terminal to a good ground on the cabinet. Read from the top terminal to the lower left terminal. Read from the top terminal to the lower right terminal. Read from the lower left terminal to the lower right terminal. Write down the resistance of each reading as you go. The highest reading you get will be the run and start winding of the compressor in series with each other. The other terminal left will be the common terminal. Read from the common terminal to each of the other terminals. The terminal with the lower resistance will be the run winding. The higher resistance the start winding. Using the original style relay is always preferred, but using a general replacement can "get you by" if needed

\015\012Older refrigerators had electric heaters on the edges of the refrigerator cabinet to help prevent moisture from building up, especially in the hot/hazy weather in the summer time. These electric heaters usually had a switch where you could turn them on or off...had words like..."switch here to prevent moisture"...switch here in damp weather".... in the picture it is in the top left of the control assembly.
\015\012Then along came the energy crunch. The manufactures stopped using the electric heaters and started running a pass of the hot condenser tubing on the edges of the cabinet where the electric heaters use to be. This is often called a yoder loop tube SxS version and the yoder loop tube Top freezer version. This has now replaced the electric heaters. If you feel heat/hot around the door opening of your refrigerator you should....
\015\012- clean the condenser coils as a dirty condenser can make the tubing hotter than normal
\015\012- check/clean & replace if necessary the condenser cooling fan ( # F ) motor, if the condenser fan motor is slow or has quit the yoder loop pass will get very warm/hot to the touch
\015\012- If the condenser coils are clean and the condenser fan motor is running ok, check the fresh food and freezer section temperatures...if the refrigerator is not operating well and the temps inside are warming up, you could feel more heat/warmth than normal
Compressor is tripping. un plug it.
let it cool and inspect the relay of the compressor. see if it is bad. if it is not then the comporessor is bad.

Kenmore refrigerator 106.61282100 won't cool. Fans are operational and I hear an occasional clicking sound (relay?) I measure 120V AC out of the run capacitor (part #2169373) ofter every other click (0V otherwise). The compressor is warm but not turning on. My wife reported a burning smell before she noticed the fridge wasn't cooling. I can detect a slight smell as well but I can't locate it. Can you suggest any other debug steps, or do you think the compressor needs to be replaced?

Hello. I have a GE Profile Model PFS22S1SBSS (purchased 7 years ago). Yesterday, the internal temp controls showed 53 for fridge and +17 for the freezer. It had stopped cooling. It is now not cool at all in either part. We (obviously) emptied it. Today we unplugged it, waited 10 min. and plugged it in again. It made loud clicking sounds for a few minutes and stopped. We tried setting the temp controls but as soon as we pressed a button, they started flashing 555 and 555 in each space.

My amana bottom freezer fridge started clicking every few minutes then stop cooling top and bottom. Then it just started working perfectly again after a few days. After a couple more days it started making the clicking sound again and stopped working. We've been thru about 4 of these cycles now over the past couple of weeks. I had a handyman check the compressor with a meter and he says it fine. Also, made sure the coils were cleaned. Any suggestions. I'm out of work at the moment and I'm

If your model has a start-capacitor on the compressor, that is the problem. When the switch energizes the compressor, the start cap provides extra current (technically phase-angle correction) to start the motor. If the motor start cap is ... Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Maytag side by side, MSD2434GEW, about 8 years old, the fridge side appears to be working fine, the freezer side is about the same temp as the fridge and not cold enough to freeze anything.

Does this sound like something simple and what would it be, or is it time to look for a new fridge?

Clicking Fridge I have a 3 to 4 year old Kenmore fridge. To date there doesn't seem to be any problem with the fridge working properly; everything stays cold in the fridge and frozen in the freezer. However, over the last couple of weeks we have noticed that it has been making a clicking noise. Every few minutes it sounds like it's clicking on and then right after it clicks right back off. It does this quite frequently and occasionally it makes a bit of a thud noise. Any help would be greatly ap

When this sound is made the lights in the fridge dim like a lot of power is being drawn, and return to normal after the click. The fridge appears to be operating normally otherwise.


Possible this can be a faulty thermostat sensor action tripping the relay which is clicking. You must remove and check the backside relay if the fridge is old for a wearing off.\012Also a fault in the circuit of the auto defrost can cause the c ... KitchenAid KBRP20EMSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
